Congratulations to the Norwich High School for Girls Year 11 students as they receive their GCSE results

Students and staff at Norwich High School for Girls are celebrating receiving a fantastic set of GCSE results today following the return to in person examinations for the first time since the covid pandemic began.

• 60% of all results were graded 9-8, with a quarter of all students achieving straight 9-8s and nearly half of all students achieving 9-7.
• 98% of results were graded 9-4 in English and Mathematics, and 97% of results across all subjects were graded 9-4.

Alison Sefton, Head of Norwich High School for Girls said:

“Students should be very proud of their excellent results collected today, especially given that this cohort faced a disrupted start to their senior school education due to the covid pandemic. I would like to thank the hard working Norwich High staff for continuing to inspire students with their dedication, but most importantly, well done to the students for approaching their studies with determination and for all their well-deserved successes.”

Particular congratulations must go to Saishruti Alanoor, Shaana Amarawickrama, Saanvi Shenoy, Selina Husain, Annalise Smith and Erin Wilcox who were awarded straight 9s.

Three quarters of all GCSE English grades at Norwich High School for Girls were graded 9-8, with English Language 75% 9-8 and English Literature 78% 9-8. This was reflected for History with 74% of all GCSE grades being 9-8. For Geography 78% of all grades were 9-7. Fine Art grades were also excellent at 80% 9-7.

Mark Braybrook, Deputy Head Academic at Norwich High School for Girls said: “A huge well done to our Year 11 students on their exceptional results. At Norwich High School for Girls, our education is about more than exams – our ACTIVE approach to learning encourages students to think about how they learn, be curious and to contribute to our community. Problem solving and creative thinking are real-world-ready skills that will place them in good stead as they move into Year 12 and beyond.”
